If you’ve ever dreamed of starting your own food blog (or any other type of blog), now is the time!
Food Blogger Pro, a membership site that teaches you how to grow a successful food blog, is closing their doors to new memberships next week. I have to confess, I’m sad about this because I love new members. The more the merrier!
I joined Food Blogger Pro (FBP) about a year ago and joining FBP was one of the smartest things I’ve done for my blog.
FBP is closing their doors to new memberships on June 2, 2016 at 11:59p.m. CST. They’re also capping their membership subscriptions to 2000 people (I think they have about 1000+ now). After November 19, they won’t allow people to join again until Fall of 2016. So if you’re thinking of joining, now is a great time. Sign up for Food Blogger Pro now to save time (seriously, you’ll save hundreds of grueling hours googling boring technical aspects of running a blog). Bjork and Lindsay’s video courses are liking having friends, who already know the ins and outs of blogging, come over and teach you step by step how to do everything.
your new blogging friends ↓
- 300+ video courses on everything you can imagine relating to food blogging like, installing and using WordPress, food photography, building traffic, how to setup email newsletters, generating income, social media strategy tips, how to write an e-book, and lots more.
- Community Forum – this is the best part! Connect with other bloggers and get answers to specific questions. The FBP community is the nicest, supportive forum community I’ve ever been a part of.
- Live events – members have access to live events like online chats, Q&A sessions – these are really fun!
- Deals & discounts on many tools and services that are helpful to food bloggers.
- Nutritional Label Tool. I haven’t used this yet (need to!) but you’ll know exactly what is in every recipe you make. (i.e. grams of sugar, fat, calories, etc.)
- Free Podcast – the Food Blogger Pro podcast is free for everyone, whether you’re a member or not. Check them out and see if it’s for you. My favorite time of day is driving to and from work while listening to these informative blogging lessons.
- Not just for food blogs – almost all of their video courses could apply to various types of blogging (craft bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, etc.)
Food blogging is a lot harder than I ever imagined it would be. If I had a piece of cake for every time I came across a blogging road block that made me want to pull my hair out or quit, I’d never crave cake again. And that would be…well…weird.
Being a member has really paid off. I’ve increased my email subscriptions, I’ve learned a TON about photography, and I love being able to ask my fellow bloggers for help 24 hours a day.
Here’s a small sampling of the videos (below). Lindsay, the blogger behind Pinch of Yum, teaches you everything you could ever want to know about food photography.
So they can focus on more teaching and getting to know/help current members. It’ll be a little like college where you can only enroll twice a year and then you hunker down and learn as much as you can the rest of the time.
Sign up for Food Blogger Pro and help grow your food blog! There is so much to learn and why not get the help and support you deserve so you can focus more on the best part about food blogging: the food! cake! eating stuff! wondering what you’re going to do with 3 dozen cookies!
If you’re still not sure or want to learn more about FPB, check out their blog. It’s free!
Don’t forget the deadline is June 2 at 11:59p.m. CST.
